I’m playing with snap to package a GTK2 application, and it doesn’t work. I’ve found that not even the example in the Snap Store works:
sudo snap install gtk2-demo --edge
error: cannot perform the following tasks:
- Ensure prerequisites for "gtk2-demo" are available (no snap revision available as specified)
Any idea what’s wrong here? Any workarounds I can try?
I can reproduce this issue.
gtk2-demo package tries to plug a content interface from
gtk2-common-themes, which we haven’t yet published to stable. Presumably that’s the prerequisite it is complaining about.
Try manually installing the edge version of gtk2-common-themes first:
snap install --edge gtk2-common-themes
You will probably need to switch to the edge channel of gtk-common-themes too:
snap refresh --edge gtk-common-themes
We hadn’t published this all to stable, since it was still going through reviews to allow auto-connection. I suppose we’re now at a point where we can publish to stable and start recommending people use these interfaces.
